Mimi Takes Five - #122


ONE // Bath Bombs
With the arrival of sweater-weather, it also means that bath season is officially open! There's nothing I love more than a soothing bath after a long day, especially as the weather gets cooler. I try to make my home baths as luxurious as possible with heaps of Epsom salts and a fragrant bath bomb. I stocked up on bath bombs and bath oils just in time and am looking forward to some soothing soaks!


TWO // Plaid Flannel Shirts
Fall also rings in flannel season! (I guess this time of year is the beginning of many "seasons", haha!) Being the plaid-loving country girl that I am, I can't resist adding a flannel or two to my collection every fall. Old Navy always delivers in this department and I snagged these three beauties during a sale. I love how the burgundy colourway of the Buffalo plaid elevates the style, I'd been wanting to add a black watch plaid shirt for a few years now, and I couldn't resist the mustard plaid! These are the softest layering pieces you'll be sure to wear all fall long!


THREE // September Ipsy
I'm really loving my September goodies from Ipsy. I've been wearing the new warm-tone eye shadow palette every day since I got my bag and it's the perfect shades for fall! Another favourite is this gorgeous burgundy nail polish. It has amazing staying power and the finish is nice and shiny. I've had it on for almost and weak and not a single chip in sight. This is a feat considering I've been doing lots of scrubbing and cleaning this week. I'm impressed! I've also been enjoying the serum that I apply to my face in the evenings before using my rose quartz roller. This little ritual is so soothing and relaxing. The lip colour has a really smooth texture and is the perfect every day pink shade. I love the volume the mascara gives and I always like a good face scrub. The only product I don't love is the perfume and that's just because I'm not a perfume person. It smells nice, but I just wouldn't wear it. I'll be sure to give it to someone who will!


FOUR // Brown Felt Fedora
I love a good hat and this newbie brown felt fedora is the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe! I have a lot of felt floppy hats, but also like the fedora shape, just to change things up a bit. I have a taupe fedora that I find myself gravitating towards more often, so I figured a brown one wouldn't be remiss. I love adding a nice hint of chocolate brown to my autumnal looks, so this beauty will be sure to get lots of wear!


FIVE // Countdown to Christmas
I know it's only October, but Hallmark released their Countdown to Christmas and Miracles of Christmas movie line-ups and they start at then end of October. If you've been following for a while, you'll already know of my love for all things Hallmark movies and, at Christmas time, I live for their festive feel-good movies. I print off my check lists every year and try to watch them all! The most wonderful time of the year is (almost) here!
